I’d like to hide all my mp3’s. I may change my mind so I would prefer to not have to remove them from the folder. My library is quite slow to load and I could mitigate that by not looking at mp3’s in general.
Please try this:
Track Browser -> Focus -> Format -> MP3 -> Select all files on that page -> 3-dot drop down at the top -> Edit -> Hide Tracks.
That works if I am looking in the track browser, but I am going into the Artist, looking at the Main Albums (2300) … how can I remove the mp3’s from here? also how can i configure this in a persistent way?
Start in the Album Browser instead of the Track Browser and follow the same steps.
Using OS tools, move all your MP3 files and associated folders to a new top level folder that’s outside of your current Roon Watched folder.
Then in Roon create a new Watched folder that points to it.
This new “MP3” Watched folder can then be enabled/ disabled as required.
When disabled, all the MP3 references in Roon should no longer be seen.
Im my case i have all MP3s in a separate folder hierarchy. That way i can Enable/Disable the compressed files by a quick and simple click in the Storage-section of settings. Very smooth experience!
Thats one of the reasons why i don like ROCKs behaviour of adding the Root folder of internal storage , when available.
Edit: Sorry, didnt spot @Carl answer above…
